Ward Virts Concert Series, Tanya Langlois
February 11 at 3:00 p.m., Prince Frederick Campus Building B, Multipurpose Room

Praised for her “wonderfully rich and expressive voice” (DC Theater Scene), mezzo-soprano Tanya Ruth Langlois has appeared across the United States and in Europe singing in recital, oratorio performances, and on the operatic stage. Tanya began her musical studies at the age of seven with the piano and cello. Upon acceptance to the Tanglewood Institute’s Young Artists Vocal Program at the age of seventeen, she chose to pursue voice as her primary instrument, going on to obtain Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in voice from the University of Maryland, where she studied with soprano Carmen Balthrop. Tanya also minored in piano performance and continued to play cello with her string quartet during her time at UMD.

A passionate educator, Tanya teaches voice and piano privately throughout the DC metro region and is Director of Music at Saint Nicholas Lutheran Church in Huntingtown, Maryland. In 2016, she began her formal study of the organ and is currently pursuing her graduate diploma in Church Music from Shenandoah University. Tanya lives in Virginia with her husband, pianist Michael Langlois, with whom she recently performed Schumann’s Liederkreis op. 24 and op. 39 in recital.

The performance begin at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. No tickets or reservations are needed.
